    A SOUTHERN WHITE WOMAN FOREVER CHANGED...BY THE PATH SHE CHOSE.. Dorothy grew up in the Jim Crow South the youngest child of six in the height of The Great Depression. Feeling left out and isolated as she came of age, she kept seeking her place in a world of what she viewed the Big People. As a college student she took part in an inter-racial experiment with Negro students across town. Afterwards, she sought out more such experiences and found them. Soon afterwards, she spent an entire summer in a racially diverse environment and left with the revelation to "do something on the inter-racial level" after graduation. Her newfound commitment allowed her to witness several historical moments in Civil Rights history in the years to come. All the while she put off marriage and motherhood for nearly two decades, as she learned about the role Race had played in her life. After marriage, she continued to teach others the lessons she had learned. After being widowed and raising her only child, Dorothy retired and finally began to write her story well into her senior years when she was diagnosed with dementia. Despite this challenge, she kept writing and fighting for Civil Rights in both big and small ways. When her daughter Kaypri realized her mother could no longer write a sentence, she picked up the baton, and gifted this story to her mother for her 80th birthday. (YouTube) This story is the result of a daughter's tremendous love for her unsung and pioneering mother. The Rave Reviews! ..".readers will be touched not only by her story but by her daughter's dedication in bringing it to light. ...A vote of thanks to Dorothy for helping to create our new, more open and inclusive American future." - HETTIE JONES Author, How I Became Hettie Jones, New School Professor "What life teaches us is that we have the ability to continue to grow. Spring is a season but also a possibility as there is renewal. I Didn't Know What I Didn't Know shows us renewal at its finest, a wonderful insight." - NIKKI GIOVANNI Activist, Author, Racism 101, Distinguished Professor of English, Virginia Tech "Dorothy's work models the healing our nation still has to do to fully embrace both our diversity AND the common humanity of us all." - VALERIE BATTS Executive Director, VISIONS Inc. "If Blacks and Whites are going to work together to help our nation live out its democratic ideals they will need to move beyond the misunderstandings and denials about our racial differences and similarities. Dorothy Hampton Marcus invites us into the intimacy of her white family circle to allow us to observe what its like to grow up as a Southern girl and how she became one of the unsung heroines of the movement toward becoming a "'somewhat' more perfect union." For years I have said of her "she is a genuine, good white woman." In this book we get to see what helped to make her such a remarkable human rights activist." - DR. JAMES A. FORBES The Harry Emerson Fosdick Distinguished Professor, Union Theological Seminary and Senior Pastor Emeritus of Riverside Church, New York, NY "Thank you Kaypri and Dorothy for sharing this story. For all of us waking up to what it means to be white today, it's inspirational to learn that Dorothy's waking up process had continued to be the cornerstone of her life, and what she seems to hold dear as her legacy. She was ahead of her time for sure " -DEBBY IRVING Racial Justice Educator, Author of Waking Up White "An interesting account, told by mother and daughter, of the kind of life which often goes unexamined, but which has a place in history." - SUSAN STRAIGHT Author, Professor of Creative Writing, University of California Riverside, National Book Award Finalist KAYPRI - FOUNDER, Priscilla Belle Productions Twitter: @dorothyknows @kaypri @kaypribabygirl Facebook: www.facebook.com/dorothyhmarcusstory Instagram: www.instagram.com/kaypribabygirl LinkedIn: http: //www.linkedin.com/pub/kaypri-actswrite/7/2b0/1b.
